Much has transpired since first publishing "Lyme Disease and the SS Elbrus" refuting Jessie Ventura and Michael Carroll's Plum Island conspiracy theories citing this old Agricultural Lab off the coast of Connecticut as the source of Lyme Disease. Suspicion, instead is cast upon Soviet WWII Lend-lease shipping and its New York fur brokerage, AMTORG Trading Company as the suspect source, just a stone's throw away from the isolated lab.

AMTORG’s commerce was monitored by the FBI's most notorious mole, Robert Hanssen under Project Pocketwatch as he chaired the Russian Counter Intelligence Desk. Verdon's Freedom of Information Requests to the FBI were stonewalled a dozen years, greatly impeding her research; other files simply vanished altogether. Unbeknownst to the author at that time, spy Hanssen had forked over some 60,000 pages to the Russians, many originals.

Consequently, the author was forced to seek a first hand account of the scope of Soviet plagues amidst the interior of the Asian continent. Who better to quiz than a Nazi scientist in Soviet service, and there were thousands at the end of the war clamoring to get the hell back out.

The photos on the cover of this book are of a German Paperclip scientist, a “Dragon Returnee” from Russia in the midst of the Cold War. But which Dragon? When DOW chemist, Henry Tolkmith was interviewed at his Florida retirement home about his US Army dossier photos, he denied the photos were of himself! The door swung wide opened to speculation of a HICOG sanctioned identity theft. The photos hold a striking similarity to the real Dr. Josef Mengele.

Who was this man, a mild mannered I.G. Farben POW escaping Beketovka's poison gas factory; or Auschwitz's infamous Angle of Death seeking Western asylum? Mengele's expertise in tick borne diseases of the nervous system, pesticides and poison gases were highly coveted both East and West. More questions arose than were answered.

What was Mengele's role at the Katyn forest Massacre, the necessity for the bombing of Dresden, and the intrigues of a Nazi-Soviet re-alliance just prior the Capitulation? You bet your bippi there are still skeletons in our politicians' closets sporting giant fig leaves. Follow the fur atop this rickety old Lend-lease tanker, the SS Elbrus and judge for yourself the scope of this 60 year conspiracy of silence, secrets so outrageous they'll turn history upside-down.
